Model Description:
12 mm Helical Scan Digital Instrumentation Recorder. up to 250 Gigabytes tape, up to 240 Megabits/se

Model Details

A new addition to the Sony DIR family of digital instrumentation recorders, the DIR240 12 mm Helical Scan Instrumentation Recorder is a half-inch compact model featuring high-capacity recording (250 Gigabytes/cassette) and a high data transfer rate (up to 240 Megabits/sec). And, with the future in mind, the DIR-240 can be mounted in PetaSite -- the DMS8400 Series tape robotic libraries -- to build enormous data storage systems. These systems can provide capacities of up to 14 PB -- huge enough to match any likely system requirements for today and tomorrow.



Features:

  • 12 mm Helical Scan Instrumentation Recorder
  • Variable-rate recording and playback at 0 Mbits/sec to 240 Mbits/sec
  • Storage capacity up to 250 Gigabytes on a single standard cassette
  • Utilized 8-bits parallel (ECL data and clock) data I/O
  • Controlled remotely via RS-232C or RS-422A
  • Incorporates both IRIG A/B Time Code as a standard feature
  • Fully compatible for playback on Sony's DTF-2™ computer tape drives
  • Support's Sony's PetaSite™ Mass Storage Automated Tape Libraries
  • Large storage-capacity: 250 GB on an L-cassette and 74 GB on an S-cassette; demonstrates the clear advantage of the 12 mm helical-scan-recording format over linear recording
  • Long recording time: 138 minutes for L-cassette and 41 minutes for S-cassette at 240 Mb/sec.
  • High reliability: A new design of dust protection system and recording heads with increased durability give longer effective operating times
  • IRIG A or IRIG B time code interface: Both IRIG B time code I/O (100 b/sec) and IRIG A time code I/O (1 kb/sec) are provided as a standard feature
  • Compact design: Has the same space-saving mechanism as the GY-Series of DTF tape drives; they are easily installed alongside existing half-inch Sony recorders in tape-based robotic libraries such as the Sony DMS-B35 and PetaSite.
  • Data transfer rates of up to 30 Megabytes (MB)/s: High-speed, 8-bit Parallel I/O ports provides a variable data transfer rate of up to 240 Mb/sec; alternatively, the Ultra Wide Differential SCSI Interface features a burst playback transfer rate of 40 MB/sec; Sustained transfer rates via this interface are 30 MBytes/sec.
  • Read compatibility with DTF-2™: read compatibility with the latest version of the Sony Digital Tape Format
  • System flexibility: Three optional ports are available to provide communications controls, maintenance flexibility, and network support.
  • Storage capacity (formatted): L-Cassette: 250 GBS-Cassette: 74 GB
  • Recording time: L-cassette: 138 minS-Cassette: 41 min
  • Data transfer rate: Variable rate I/F: 0 to 240 MbpsSCSI IF: 30 MB/s (sustained)
  • Buffer memory: 256 MB
  • Bit error rate: 1 x 10E-13 bit or less
  • Recording media: 1/2-inch metal particle tape -- L-cassette: DI-250GL (250 GB); S-cassette: DI-74GS (74 GB)

  • Option: RS-232C x 2 (D-sub 25-pin); 10Base-T Ethernet
  • Power requirements: AC 100 to 240 V, 50/60 Hz, 400 Hz
  • Power consumption: 100 V 2.8 A/ 240 V 1.2A
  • Operating temperature: 5°C to 40°C (41°F to 104°F)
  • Operationg humidity: 20% to 80% (non-condensing)
